Bessette, who is married to the novelist Matthew Quick, shares with him a love for dogs, a faith in community, and a passion for intergenerational tales, not to mention a terrific ear for dialogue and an enviable knack for moving a story of many pieces seamlessly forward. Momentum builds, and it builds rightly, leaving plenty of room for the tenderness that binds these knowable souls together.
Simply from Scratch will, I'm certain, win over many readerly hearts when it launches (so why not pre-order?). We believe in the characters that Bessette has fashioned. We root for them, old-friends-style.
